Hepatitis C virus nonstructural 5A protein inhibits the starvation‑induced apoptosis of hepatoblastoma cells by increasing Beclin 1 expression. Oncol Rep. 2019 Mar 13;: Authors: Quan M, Liu S, Zhou L, Feng S, Zhang Y, Cheng J Abstract Hepatitis C virus (HCV) nonstructural protein 5A (NS5A) modulates cellular apoptosis, which is involved in the occurrence and development of liver cancer. The mechanisms of apoptosis inhibition by NS5A in liver cancer cells remains unclear. Beclin 1, which functions upstream of autophagosome formation, is upregulated by NS5A. Autophagy, an evolutionarily ...

We present 3 cases of hepatitis-associated aplastic anemia after hepatitis A virus infection. One of our cases is the first reported case of hepatitis-associated aplastic anemia after fulminant hepatitis A infection. Patient characteristics were consistent with older reports with regard to age and sex. All 3 patients were male individuals under the age of 20. In addition, all 3 patients had A+ blood group. Outcomes in our series were poor because of the unavailability of antithymocyte globulin and bone marrow transplantation.

AbstractAn extremely affordable virus concentration method based on adsorption-elution to glass wool and subsequent reconcentration through polyethylene glycol 6000 (PEG) precipitation was optimized to recover not only non-enveloped viruses but also enveloped viruses. Hepatitis A virus (HAV) and transmissible gastroenteritis virus (TGEV) were employed as surrogates for naked and enveloped viruses, respectively, to set up the methodology. Initial experimentation in small-volume samples showed that both types of particles readily adsorbed to the positively charged glass wool but were poorly detached from it through standard ...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewInfectious diseases are a risk when traveling internationally, and it is important to know the potential disease burden of a region and take appropriate preventative actions before traveling. For individuals with HIV, there are special considerations and contradictions for various vaccines and medications as well as interactions with likely antiviral drugs. The purpose of this review is to summarize the vaccine and medication recommendations for travelers with HIV infection. We also review recent studies to update these recommendations.Recent FindingsThe recommendation for yellow fever vaccine has ...

lgaço Lia L. Lewis-Ximenez Hepatitis A virus (HAV) outbreaks among men who have sex with men (MSM) have been reported worldwide and associated primarily with sexual transmission through oral-anal sex. Here, we provide the molecular and evolutionary description of a European strain, linked to HAV outbreaks among MSM, detected in a Brazilian homosexual couple. Bayesian analysis provided evidence that the viral isolates were introduced in Brazil from Spain between the end of 2016 and the beginning of 2017.

In conclusion, we demonstrated that the VP3 expression mediated by rAAAV in ducklings could induce protective immunity against DHAV challenge, and this could be a candidate vaccine for the control of duck viral hepatitis. Keywords: avian adeno-associated virus; duck hepatitis A virus; VP3 gene; immunogenicity. PMID: 30879313 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Fernández Prada M, Alonso Penanes P, Morales Del Burgo P, Pérez Martinez I, Villa Del Amo MC Abstract Patients with inflammatory bowel disease are likely to receive immunomodulation treatment and therefore, should be properly vaccinated. Despite their proven safety, vaccines are not exempt from adverse reactions. The clinical case was a young female with ulcerative colitis under mesalazine treatment, who developed leukocytoclastic vasculitis following vaccination for pneumococci, varicella and hepatitis A. This adverse reaction after the previously mentioned vaccines is barely described in th...

We report an unusual case of haemophagocytosis associated with hepatitis A virus (HAV) infection in a 21-year-old man. This was further complicated by haemolysis secondary to G-6-PD deficiency and fungal sepsis. Our patient was treated successfully with intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIg) and supportive care. A systematic review of all reported cases of HAV associated haemophagocytosis is presented. PMID: 30871416 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
